LIFE LATELY + MY JOURNALING EXPERIENCE

Hi everyone, thanks for visiting the blog once again. Lately, life has been so fantastic. However, still remains a healing journey for me because of an experience am undergoing currently. Recently, I had to let go of some habits and toxic people who I never knew I could get rid of.
I finally got rid of persons who deliberately post derogatory things that hurt people on the media. I just had to let them go by blocking them. I don’t want to read their posts and don’t want them to read mine anymore. This way, my esteem is protected, my joy is secure and am at peace with myself.
Look, if you discover that what someone post on social media is draining you. Please block them. If you discover that the people you follow make you feel bad about yourself, please unfollow them.
My Journaling Experience
Because am presently in my healing stage, I use journal. This has really helped me to express my emotion and heal. Again, inspirations are birthed each day. Look below for one of the quotes birthed from my experience lately.

The nest I stumbled on recently
 Recently, I stumbled on a nest on a tree in front of my house and the thought was “If a bird could build the nest with intuition, that means the birds that God created are creative, how much more human beings”. “Lord help me to be more creative, Amen” I prayed.
The tree with a comfortably seated bird nest. God is awesome.
